The Journey Home Project, founded in 2014, sees its mission as aiding those organizations that have proven to be the most valid and effective when it comes to meeting veterans' needs. Co-founded by Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels and his longtime manager David Corlew, The Journey Home Project has provided assistance to The Boot Campaign, Task Force Tagger Foundation, Operation Stand Down, The Shepherds Men, Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship Foundation, as well as funded the Middle Tennessee State University’s Veterans and Military Family Center— now named the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center.
David Corlew, a longtime supporter of our nation's military, has produced the documentary "The Journey Home: A Soldier's Story" defining the mission that Charlie Daniels had been on for years supporting causes for veterans long before TJHP was established. In addition, Corlew produced the DVD "Charlie Daniels Band Live in Iraq," where he had traveled seven times as well as Afghanistan twice. Thanksgiving 2005 brought Daniels and Corlew to Iraq as part of Operation Heartstrings, where they dropped 100 guitars, courtesy of Gibson CEO Henry Juskiewicz, into the hands of soldiers that were musically inclined, however, weren't able to travel with their personal guitars.
Corlew will appear on Fox Business Network's Varney & Company, SiriusXM's Patriot Channel, and Fox News Radio on September 11th to discuss The Journey Home Project.
About The Journey Home Project:
The Journey Home Project is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that raises contributions, takes donations and provides assistance to other non-profit organizations that benefit veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The Journey Home Project was co-founded in 2014 by country music legend Charlie Daniels and board members: David Corlew, Joe & Mercedez Longever. Conscious of the need to assist our nation’s veterans, they have set out to partner with organizations that do the most good, with the least overhead. Working in tandem with these organizations, The Journey Home Project is making a difference in the lives of American patriots.
As a result of funds raised through Daniels' 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam in 2015 and 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam in 2016 at the Bridgestone Arena and other entertainment related events, The Journey Home Project has been able to donate funds to help with the completion of the state-of-the-art Veterans and Military Families Center on campus at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), among various other fundraising events for veterans.
